Tried to start my 16 kw generac generator (item 52440) today (outside temp 37 degrees) after
having the system down for many weeks (breaker in the house was off).
It turned over for about 15 seconds and then I saw smoke coming from the box under the start switch.
I assume I should have turned on the breaker inside the house and waited for a length of time before trying to start the system.
Now I need to ascertain what components smoked. Anyone have a diagram I could use to checkout what components
need to be replaced?? Any insights as to probable component that smoked???
